Luck of the Irish




Since we have Irish blood in our family tree, I try to add a little green to the month of March. I keep it simple; just a few touches of shamrocks here and there. A free St. Patrick's printable, in a simple white frame adds some flair when propped in front of a window pane on my mantel and on my front porch, a bit of bright green burlap ribbon is a welcome shot of seasonal color.



A slate tile, with a prominent shamrock, is simplicity at its best on this Pottery Barn shelf that I like to change with the seasons. And, these easy to make ribbon candles are a bright and cheery accent in my kitchen.



The snow continues to hang on this month and a seasonal flag in the backyard area brings a smile, while we anxiously wait for all that snow to finally melt. There may be no green grass in sight, but my St. Patrick's Day touches of color, give March the colorful welcome we need.

Happy Thursday!

  1. Nice, simple, pretty touches of green. I keep saying I will do a twig tree for each month with different crocheted ornaments, but hasn't happened yet. One day, one day. :) Warm wishes, Tammy

  2. Perfect. I love all of your pretty st patricks d├ęcor. It's snowing again... and you know what, I'm not complaining. : ) Spring will be here soon!
    stay warm.

  3. It is so nice to see a touch of Irish when we are having so much snow. Not the norm for us.

  4. It's nice to see your touches of green. Hopefully soon the world around us will also turn green. xo Laura

  5. My maiden name is Kelly, and I'm in the DAR through my Irish ancestor, last name Mahaffey. I celebrate with shamrocks and green, too! Very cute ideas in your home!

  6. Nice! Love that Shamrock in the second photo!

  7. Looks cute! I see you still have tons of snow like we do....will this ever end?

  8. I love St. Patrick's Day both because I'm Irish and because it is a real sign that spring is coming! As you can imagine, I have many decorative items and articles of clothing with shamrocks - including lots from Notre Dame.
